*Beanie Sigel is facing criminal charges for alleged tax fraud in his native Pennsylvania.

Federal prosecutors in Philadelphia say the rapper, born Dwight Grant, made $1.5 million from 2002 to 2004, but filed no tax returns.

Sigel has been jailed on drug and weapons charges, and for prescription drug use while on federal probation. But he has also led anti-violence rallies in his hometown and spoken to high school students about life choices.

His albums include “The Truth,” “The B. Coming” and “The Solution.”
